So You Prefer The Bald Look?

Posted by STETSON CREATIVE Friday, July 30, 2010

For whatever reason, you decided that bald is beautiful, but that doesn't get you off the hook for caring for your scalp.  A shaved head still requires specific care.

1. PREP.  You should shave your head at the end of a hot shower when the hairs are softer.  Apply a good quality shave cream such as AVEDA's Pure-Formance shave cream.  I recently had the privilege to to test out this brand new cream (It's not yet in stores!), from Aveda's award-winning pure-formance line which features soothing aloe, sunflower, licorice, and soybean extracts.  TIP: Leave the shave cream on for several minutes before shaving for the smoothest, irritation-free shave.

2. SHAVE. Use a good quality razor.  My favorite is the GILLETTE Fusion Power, with 5 blades for the closest shave you have ever had!

$11 - Drugstores Nationwide

3. MOISTURIZE. As with any other shaving (legs, underarms, face), dry skin can often occur, so use a good moisturizer/aftershave.  Also from AVEDA's brand new Pure-Formance shaving system is the dual-action aftershave, which soothes shaving irritation AND moisturizes skin using the same award-winning pure-formance formulations.

4. PROTECT. A shaved or bald head has a much greater exposure to the sun's damaging rays, so use a sunscreen with a high SPF like JACK BLACK Sun Guard with SPF 45.  In addition to the sun protection factor, it offers vitamins A, C, and E to sooth and nourish the skin.  It's also water and sweat resistant, so you won't have to reapply.
